Zurich get hair-raising whilst fund-raising

Richard Hill of Saracens holds a giant cheque for £30,000 which was the amount of money raised by Zurich employees for Comic Relief this Spring.

Zurich staff were actively involved with this year's Comic Relief theme, the "big hair do", where they redressed their tresses by cutting, curling, dying, twisting, bunching and scrunching.

Chris Staples, Community Affairs Director, commented, "Once again our employees have come up with inventive ways to support Comic Relief, and many have given up their evenings to take pledges in our call centres. While it is fun for staff, the much needed funds address the very real needs highlighted by Comic Relief."

Notes:Red Nose Day is a national fundraising event that takes place every two years and is organised by Comic Relief. Comic Relief was launched on Christmas Day 1985 from the Safawa refuges camp in Sudan, in response to growing needs in the UK and Africa, and they are seriously committed to helping poverty and social injustice. Over £250 million has been raised since Comic Relief began with over £55 million raised during the last Red Nose Day.
